Late Nigerian singer Mohbad’s body was exhumed on Thursday, September 19, at a gravesite in Ikorodu, and the disturbing discoveries inside the coffin fueled the demand for justice.
Mohbad passed away on September 12, 2023, and his hasty burial the following day in an unconventional location raised suspicions.
Videos circulated online, revealing Mohbad’s grave after the exhumation, with witnesses suggesting the presence of blood, sparked questions about the possibility that he was buried alive.

In the tweet shared on Thursday, Benjamin Hundeyin, the Lagos state police spokesperson, confirmed that the law enforcement agency has completed exhumation of the late singer’s corpse.
He added that an autopsy will commence immediately.
Joseph Aloba, the father of Mohbad, earlier revealed why he quickly buried his son.
Aloba said in Yoruba culture, it is “customary not to keep a deceased person’s body for long if both parents are alive”.
He said if Mohbad had passed away at an older age, he might have considered putting him in a mortuary.
On September 14, Aloba also said Mohbad had passed away after receiving an injection administered by an auxiliary nurse.
The Lagos police inaugurated a 13-man special investigation team to probe the death of the singer on Monday.
